Description of problem:
I have had the problemn several times now where my PC doesn't boot into X due to
incorrect/incomplete X display settings. If I run redhat-config-xfree86 it tries
to start x and this is a problem if x won't start due to incorrect
driver/settings etc. I have tried redhat-config-xfree86 --noui but it doesn't
seem to do anything, and I just get a crlf.
There used to be a great X configutation application called "Xconfigurator" that
made it very easy to set up or change X, but now apart from arcane editing of
the XF86Config file I can't see any way to easily set X up. Even with this
editing process, you have to edit-save-startx and if it fails then you have to
go back and do it again.
A nice easy-to-use X configuration application would be much appreciated. Even
something that loaded the standard VGA drivers like Microsoft does in Windows
Safe Mode might be good because at least you would have an X display to work with.
